WYOMING, Mich. -- A picture of three little girls holding hands and praying before they eat their breakfast has touched thousands on social media. The girls are Oriana, Grace and Alexis.
Two of them, Oriana and Grace are six-years-old and Alexis is three.

The three girls' stepmom and mom say they have taught the girls by example to pray before meals, but usually the grown-ups are there to initiate it. On this particular morning, the kids did it on their own.

"We gave the girls their breakfast came back to give them their milk and caught them praying. We are definitely doing something right. This may not be a twerk video. This is something worth sharing to the world if kids see no color and are able to pray together so should we," Rutha Andrew wrote on her Facebook page.

It received about 3,000 comments; many of them 'Amens'. To hear the little girls' reaction when they find out their picture has gone 'viral' watch the video in the player above or click here for the story from FOX 17 in West Michigan.
